Crochet

I'm thinking about maybe crocheting for a lil profit. I crochet things for people all the time but never charge, and I buy the materials. So now I want to start a small business from home to earn some extra money. Does anyone else do this? How much do you make? How much should I charge. Yarn isn't expensivebecause I buy in bulk but some projects can be time consuming. Also, how do you advertise?

  • I crochet, but I don't sell it. Your best location to sell is Etsy.com It's all handmade/homemade stuff. I would price similar stuff on there and see what they are selling it for. I konw it's insanely time consuming, so I'm not sure how much real profit you are making if you factor in time. Good luck with it though!

  • I dont crochet(I cant turn right lol) anyways I do other crafts and I have to warn you, it's a very bad economy for homespun crafts right now. Everyone is so broke they are cutting out the extras. but have you heard of Etsy.com?
    its a crafters site, each crafter controls their transactions. :) gl!
